Highwind, an origami inspired shooter coming Oct. 25th



Highwind will be available on the App Store on October 25th

Hello everyone,

I'm Alhvi from Selva Interactive. We're the developers of Nanuleu. We're now working on a new game, Highwind, a vertical scrolling shooter inspired in origami and paper planes. We have the beta version ready on TestFlight and will be very grateful if some of you could help us testing and telling us what you think about the gameplay and experience.



Game Description

In Highwind you control a paper plane using only two buttons. You will destroy enemy planes and protect your own. Tapping the right side of the screen will shoot bullets and holding the left side will activate the shield. The shield blocks and reflects bullets back to your enemies.

Fight different enemy planes and obstacles, each with different behaviors. Travel to different dimensions and avoid the obstacles on your way.

As you progress through the game you will be able to purchase upgrades to your health, shield and ammo. Also, each time you beat a level you will get a power up that will help you defeat your enemies.

Each time you play you will accumulate points that will unlock new planes and new game styles. Try to beat the game in each one of the different styles!



Features
  • Simple controls: Play with only two buttons
  • Different game styles: Five variations of the game including an infinite mode
  • Minigames: Three additional sections with different mechanics
  • A different experience each play: Enemy waves are randomly selected from a predefined set
  • Upgrades and power ups: Purchase upgrades to your shield, ammo and health and get a power up every level



We don't have a release date yet but we're planning to release it soon. The game will be premium, with no IAP.

Selva Interactive is a two person team based in Guatemala City, Guatemala.

Thank you I already sent you the invitations.

In other news, there was someone that filled up the form with an invalid Apple Id, so if any of you haven't received your invitation, please submit another request. I fixed up the form to check for a valid email now.

Release date

Hello everyone! We're really happy to announce that Highwind will be available on the App Store on October 25th.

Highwind is a different take on the shoot'em up genre, it has a slower pace, simple and original mechanics. We hope it will appeal to a wide range of people even those who do not like traditional shmups.

We hope you all like Highwind and if you want to know more about the game please check our website, presskit or write a reply to this thread

Thank you again to the people who helped us testing
